Julia Caprara School of Textile Arts offers you the opportunity to study on its unique, distance-learning course leading to a BA (Hons) in Embroidered Textiles, validated by Middlesex University.

This is a well-established course which since 1998 has educated year after year a motivated group of graduates who create innovative contemporary textile art.

Many of our graduates have set up a successful textile art practice or have become tutors at prestigious Art Colleges, while others go on to do a MA or even a PhD.

What does this course involve?

The course will provide you with the opportunity to explore the boundaries of your skills and techniques for textile and stitch and to give you an understanding of contemporary textile art practice. The programme which is a combination of experimental textile and theoretical modules (18 in total) will help you:

  • to explore and develop art and design using textiles and stitch;

For each of the 18 modules you will be assigned a specialist tutor who will conduct frequent one-to-one tutorials.
